This video, released in 2010, is still as stunning as ever. Watch as freediver Guillaume Nery leaps from a sandy ledge and into an underwater abyss.



Dean’s Blue Hole, the world’s largest underwater sinkhole, plunges 663 feet in a bay west of the Bahamas. Sure, the video shows him “touching” the bottom, but even for a world-class diver like Nery, this feat is impossible. This theatrical production is breathtaking nonetheless.

Bonus: Nery last month released a teaser on his new dive project, Narcose. See the even dreamier montage of deep sea free-diving in the trailer below.
